Information
Situated at the end of Cornwalls Roseland peninsula, St. Mawes is a small, picturesque fishing village that has become a veritable Mecca for boating and yachting enthusiasts the world over. First time visitors may well think they are experiencing dj vu; that is because the popular TV programme Poldark was filmed there.

With its almost Mediterranean summers and relaxing, idyllic setting its often hard to believe that there is so much going on. Obviously the main attraction is its wonderful harbour and superb range of water, sport and sailing facilities. With three excellent boatyards and numerous moorings it really is an excellent place to stay for those wanting to explore Cornwalls historic South coast.

The village has an excellent choice of restaurants and pubs offering the very best seafood dishes in the land. There is plenty of accommodation ranging from first class hotels to self catering cottages, but be warned the villages popularity means it gets booked well in advance. However if you do have to book months before your visit, rest assured your trip to St. Mawes will be well worth the wait.

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

The Idle Rocks Hotel
The Idle Rocks sits on the edge of St Mawes harbour wall in the quaint fishing village of St Mawes, on the tip of the Roseland Peninsular, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The view from the hotel is the Cornish dream brought to life: a small, idyllic harbour, narrow lanes of tidy fisherman's cottages, green fields that slope down to the sea and sandy beaches. St Mawes is located on the southern coast of the UK's mildest county, where daffodils begin to bloom in January, this makes the Idle Rocks a destination to visit all year around. Within the Roseland Peninsula, the Idle Rocks Hotel in St Mawes truly is a beautiful example of a luxury Cornwall Hotel.

Aside from its enviable location the hotel is a magnet for discerning diners, attracted by its reputation for superb cuisine as well as those simply seeking to relax in its friendly ambience and comfortable accommodation.

The terrace is simply the best place around to sit and watch life on the water of this bustling harbour in summer. In winter, the theatre of water on display (compliments of Mother Nature), provides a natural symphony of entertainment - best enjoyed from the comfort of the hotel lounge, bar and restaurant.

FOOTNOTE:
Two of the Harbourguides crew (Liz and Steve) were fortunate enough to stay at the Idle Rocks Hotel and although both have traveled all over the world they can not think of a nicer hotel or location anywhere. Liz said “its been one of the most enjoyable weeks away I have ever had” and Steve added “the rooms the restaurant and the service is second to none” They would both along with the rest of the Harbourguides crew like to say a big thank you to all the staff there especially the manager Chris Skidmore!

Details & Reviews (0)St Mawes Castle
Visitor Attractions
St Mawes Castle, owned by English Heritage, is positioned on the western point of the village. The castle was built in 1538 by Henry VIII after a confrontation with Spanish and French warships in Falmouth Bay.

The St Mawes Castle was built with sea defense in mind and as such did not offer much protection from land based forces. During the civil war in 1646 the St Mawes governor surrendered immediately with resistance as he knew defense from the land side was hopeless.

Opposite Falmouth bay lies Pendennis Castle that has a more defensive and desirable position, this became the main fort in the area and the St Mawes Castle was left without any further developments or alterations.

St Mawes Castle has always, however, been an important gun emplacement right up to the end of the Second World War.

Today the St Mawes Castle is frequented by visitors coming to the village and is also used as an excellent venue for wedding functions. With marquees on the front lawns and the inside of the castle also used, it represents a wedding venue that is able to support a large number of guests.

The Idle Rocks Hotel
The preparation of exquisite food at The Idle Rocks (Two AA Rosettes since 1992) is a well established tradition, born from the rich availability of locally-grown Cornish produce, including early season fruit and vegetables, fresh sea fish and the best quality meats and poultry.

Dinner at "The Water's Edge" Restaurant St Mawes is a very special occasion. All tastes are considered in creating the day's choice, in which the specialities of the season are highlighted in Head chef's irresistible style. Imaginative Vegetarian dishes are also prepared if required.

Breakfast is traditional with a touch of flair - enjoy dishes such as Smoked Haddock with Poached Egg, Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Egg or if you prefer, light and continental. During the day, the "Terrace" is the ideal place to enjoy lunch or a cream tea in the sunshine as you watch the world float by.

Lunch, morning coffee and afternoon tea are available. Non residents are welcome. In the summertime, the terrace is the place to be, with it's front row view of the activity on the water. There is plenty of space for relaxing at any time of day and informal meals are available. Lunch is a most enjoyable affair particularly on the hotel's waterside terrace in fair weather. The Waters Edge is a beautiful St Mawes Restaurant. The Two AA Rosettes dining experience is second to none.

The hub of the hotel is our 2 bars. The ground floor bar that opens out onto the street in the summer, is ideal for a cappuccino or a pint of Skinners finest Cornish ale, while also a great place to watch the world go by and talk to the locals while trying one of our Whole Crab Salads or a bowl of Moule Marinier.Our First floor coffee lounge which includes another bar ,offers a pool table and comfortable seating, as well as a balcony to make the most of superb views of the harbour and Fal Estuary
